Surprisingly this uses the same palette as my previous submission 'Jamaican Woman.'
I saw this lovely base and wanted to try something different. I haven't done much with creating a sort of false opacity working within a palette so this was my little experiment with that. Also I never bother trying to create, well to be honest, ANYTHING in motion so I thought I'd try with the hair. I created my own little technique for doing the hair which made it a bit easier but it still required a few hours or tweeking.
What I was trying to do here was have a light, silky even somewhat translucent top blowing against her body, a somewhat stiff long skirt and long light flowing hair. In the end I think its odd the hair is blowing so hard and the skirt is unmoved, etc. Its all a bit of a mess really but I still kind of like it..
I've only shown a couple of people and haven't received much "Ooo"ing and "Ahh"ing so I'm going to assume its far from perfect. At this point though I don't know what else to do with it..
I might have to tweek this a bit more and resubmit. However at my skill level this may very well be the best I can do. Though C+C is MORE THAN WELCOME! I have much to learn from your skilled expertise; also I haven't submitted this contest entry yet so have at!
